Grab your backstage pass and take a visceral immersion into the 1990s with one of its seminal grunge punk bands, L7.

Assembling a dynamic combination of never before-seen home video footage, relevant interviews and raucous performances, "L7:Pretend We’re Dead" is a real time journey witnessing the rise, fall, and ultimate redemption of these fierce feminist pioneers of American Rock and Roll.
